    Seriously, WTF is with this Weather?

    6" with an ice crust on top is how that epic ski day came to fruition a couple of years ago. It was like 2 snow storms, an ice storm, followed by a decent storm that allowed everything to be skiable.

    Blue Mountain land ownership

    Looking at the Carbon County GIS maps, Blue owns a pretty good amount of property under the name "Tuthill Corp", "Blue Mountain Waterpark Limited Partnership" and "Aquashicola Little Gap Inc (C/O R C Tuthill)". Let me know if I missed anything. Nice to see how much room they have to the east to expand, but it could only be to the base of the pitch without runout like homestretch given the lack of land ownership unless they snuck the lift back far enough to the west to get back to their land near the snowmaking ponds.

    PPL Surcharge

    Saw this on instagram earlier...apparently JFBB has been handing out these cards with ticket purchases? It explains why someone on here had to pay $3 (or whatever it was) on top of the their voucher. I don't think it's right for JFBB to be airing their dirty laundry and making it their customer's problem.

    You should email the PPL guy and get their side.

    It wasn't their post...they re-shared someone else's story via their story.

    For sure. It was part of their waterpark plan to build a NG power generation facility on site.

    I tracked it after the fact. UA's small RJs don't have wifi.

    After an awesome perfect trip in terms of travel, we had a slight delay out of ORD because of an antenna issue and ended up departing about 20 minutes late. Near Slippery Rock, PA the cabin altitude started to climb indicating a pressurization issue. We descended at ~4000ft/min down to 10,000 ft. Some worried passengers, but all I cared about was that we didn't divert 😂

    Ikon Pass

    Now that Toast and I have used our IKON passes....it's better than having to go to the window even once. Most IKON resorts are direct to lift with your pass. Scroll down for the short list of "go to the window" resorts. https://www.ikonpass.com/en/how-to-use-your-ikon-pass Deer Valley required getting a ticket (1 or more days, didn't matter) because they don't have automated gates.

    I don’t think Blue’s target audience is cheap asses like you.

    Blue had more new snow then Alta, sure. Did Alta have more snow? Sure. We met up with Ryan at Alta today for some turns. He gave us a rowdy tour of the place. We sidestepped/traversed all the way out to Eddie’s High Nowhere/East Greeley bowl which had variable conditions at the bottom. We also skied Spiney Chutes in Catherine’s which was heavy, but soft snow. Towards the end of our day, we saw someone skiing down East Baldy with no other tracks to be seen. Up the mountain we went. 15 minutes later we made some great turns through a chute that lead to some glorious wind buffed pow. Ryan and I look the same in photos. I have the brighter blue pants.

    Skied a nice little chute that required some careful maneuvering...here is @toast21602 below said chute.

    The 'Bird is a pretty cool place. Whoever described it as a Mini-Jackson was dead on. The chutes through the rocks, the steeps, then wide open terrain. I would love to ski there on a pow day to rip some of the huge faces they have. Snow was still soft and very chalky everywhere except Mineral Basin which was starting to get a bit too much sun. I thoroughly enjoyed the 'bird and would go back. So much terrain to explore.
